Sylgja is the only female miner in Shor’s Stone. She may be a woman but she can crack rock with the best of them.
However Sylgja isn’t doing any mining at the moment as she had a bad fall in the mine. She says she was pretty bad off for a while but a priest of Mara on his way to Dawnstar tried to heal her to the best of his abilities. Sylgja is better thanks to him but she is still pretty sore and she cannot walk far without taking a rest.
Due to this, Sylgia is unable to visit her parents where they lived at Darkwater Crossing. So she asks if J’Zhirr can help to deliver her letters. Since she asks so nicely, J’Zhirr agrees.
